Church in Bethlehem

Last Sunday Naomi and I went to a Palestinian Christian Church in Bethlehem. The whole service was in Arabic, and our friend Lily (who had invited us) translated some of it for us. There were sixteen members in the congregation, including the two of us visiting.

After the service, we had some refreshments and enjoyed fellowship with the people there. They invited us out for lunch, and we enjoyed talking with them more over a meal at a local restaurant.

For the first time since coming here, I felt like part of a community outside of JUC.
